Rosamund Pike, the star of the highly anticipated film, Gone Girl, is about to get a lot of attention for her standout role as Amy Elliott Dunne, a disillusioned housewife who suddenly disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary. The part is one intense (and showy) role, and will surely stick with audiences well after the end credits stop rolling.
With all the buzz coming her way, it’s a good time to get to know the 35-year-old English actress making a big splash Stateside.
She’s a Bond Girl
While this is definitely her biggest role, it’s hardly her first. The actress’ first big screen part was Miranda Frost, a villainous Bond Girl in Pierce Brosnan’s final James Bond film Die Another Day. She was the 68th actress to be featured as a woman who finds herself entangled with the famed British spy.
And She Can Act

A brilliantly unnerving Who episode featuring stand-out performances. Here's our spoiler-free look at Kill The Moon...
Brilliant. We may as well get to the point quickly. Kill The Moon is brilliant.
It's the first Doctor Who story to be penned by Peter Harness and the first Doctor Who story to be directed by Paul Wilmshurst. Both leave an indelible mark on Kill The Moon, that makes you wish that Steven Moffat had them on instant speed dial.
The setup is established in a Blink-esque message to Earth from Clara pre-credits. There's a big decision to make. There are 45 minutes to make it. If you make the wrong choice, basically everybody dies. So no pressure.
As you might guess, it involves the moon - although in an episode that would be tremendously easy to spoil, we're playing safer than ever in this spoiler-free piece. Furthermore, we get young Courtney in the »
Welcome once again dear reader to another delightful post about all of the goings on in the Whovian world. We’ve got some real treats for you including a look at Paul McGann’s travels to Pittsburgh, Pa, a fan’s collection that could possibly be larger than the capacity of the Tardis, a cheeky .gif for all

Tuesday, ABC premieres two sitcoms that are extremely annoying. But there is one difference among them: I want one of them to survive. That one is Selfie (8 p.m.) which, despite its cloying introduction to the world, could just be a problematic pilot and will emerge, in another episode or three, as something that realizes its potential. Reason for faith is that Selfie is from Emily Kapnek (Suburgatory), who has shown that she knows how to capture characters and be funny across a number of them. Here she's got Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Who) as

Eliza Dooley has no real friends. And frankly, it’s not hard to figure out why.
In ABC’s new comedy Selfie, Eliza (Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan) is a narcissistic, social media-obsessed pharmaceutical sales rep, who considers her present-day Insta-fame redemption for those awkward, friendless teenage years.
But as Eliza observes in the first few minutes of Tuesday’s premiere, “Being friended is not the same thing as having friends.” It’s a lesson she learns the hard way, after she tosses her cookies twice en route to a business trip — upon learning that her co-worker boyfriend is, in fact, »
You’ve seen the basic story of Selfie before—it’s the modern-day My Fair Lady. Karen Gillan plays an updated, self-absorbed, Instagram-obsessed Eliza while John Cho serves as the titular Henry. Along with Selfie, fall’s TV lineup has seen a surge in the rom-com sitcom, including NBC’s A to Z and ABC’s other romantic endeavor, Manhattan Love Story. It would seem love is in the air… just not about Selfie. EW’s Esther Zuckerman and Kat Ward discuss whether the show can be saved from itself.

Here is a preview clip and some stills from the next episode of Doctor Who, titled “Kill the Moon.” You guys? I’m not super excited by it. The clip reveals that the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) have brought along Courtney Woods (Ellis George), the not-very-charming student we met in the last episode. It looks like the show is building to a recreation of super classic Who — an older Doctor traveling with two (married?) Coal Hill teachers and a teenaged Coal Hill student. That was the line-up of the First Doctor’s companions. It sounds cool in theory, but do we actually want a teenager stomping around the Tardis? I love teen shows (read my bio below), but I would like them to stay well away from that blue box. Unfortunately, I am not in charge of these things. “Kill the Moon” also features giant moon spiders, »

The eighth series of Doctor Who is set to run until November 8, but beyond that lies the BBC sci-fi's 2014 Christmas special.
The Week in Geek has rounded up everything we know so far about this year's festive adventure - to be updated regularly as more details are revealed.
Doctor Who 2014 Christmas Special
Written by: Steven Moffat
Nick Frost: "I'm so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the Doctor Who Christmas Special, I'm such a fan of the show. The read-through was very difficult for me; I wanted to keep stuffing my fingers into my ears and scream 'No spoilers!' Every day on set I've had to silence my internal fan-boy squeals!"

Though you might not recognize him by name, J.K. Simmons is a familiar face and a recognized voice, having appeared in everything from commercials to TV series to feature films. Most recently, Simmons has been garnering Oscar buzz for his portrayal of Terence Fletcher, a tough instructor at a music conservatory who constantly terrorizes his students, in Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash. These praises have followed him since the film first premiered at Sundance, where the film won both the grand jury and audience awards. The Hollywood Reporter’s Todd McCarthy said, “For his part, Simmons has the great good fortune for a character actor to have here found a co-lead part he can really run with, which is what he excitingly does with a man who is profane, way out of bounds and, like many a good villain, utterly compelling.” Though Simmons has never been nominated for an Oscar, »

TV On The Radio singer Tunde Adebimpe had an idea for a music video, where "Pee-Wee's Playhouse" actor and icon Paul Reubens would play a race car driver losing his mind. He took the idea to Funny Or Die. Apparently, those kind of pitches work. Rope in "Doctor Who" and "Guardians of the Galaxy" star Karen Gillan, throw the formerly indie band in some smashing white suits, and you've got yourself this Danny Jelinek-directed video insanity, for song "Happy Idiot." "I got to speak with [Reubens] over the phone about doing it and, in between being blindingly nervous that I was actually talking to an actor who had shaped a Lot of my world view and trying not to freak him out by saying so, he mentioned that he's been a fan of the band for awhile," Adebimpe explained in a press release. "He liked the idea, and, somehow, here »

Writer Rob Williams (Ordinary) and artist Simon Fraser (Grindhouse, Nikolai Dante) multiply the chills, in a haunting new Doctor Who adventure into the soul of music! Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3 hits comic stores this Wednesday October 1st.
A Devil Haunts The Midnight Crossroads… And Musicians Are Its Prey! There’s a devil out on the bayou, or so they say… Something stalking bluesmen through the swamps of Mississippi, offering them talent beyond imagining, worlds at their feet – in exchange for their souls! When Alice asks the Doctor if they can visit one of her mother’s musical heroes, she’s initially disappointed. Is Jones, a forgettable singer whose talent seems to be that of disappearing in a crowded room, really the colossal talent who brought passion, creativity and meaning to her mother’s life?
And what does he have to do with the nightmarish deals taking place in the dead of night… »

Selfie is to Pygmalion what Clueless is to Emma. At least, that's what the show wishes it were. And it's trying, and there are glimmers on tonight's premiere of it almost getting there — but Eliza Dooley (get it??????) is not quite Cher Horowitz. Yet.Doctor Who's Karen Gillan stars as Eliza, vapid and social-media-obsessed, though still recovering from being called "most butt" in her yearbook. The constant Instagramming and hashtagging is a way to compensate for how insecure and lonely she is, a point the show hammers home over and over; earning "likes" is not the same thing as being liked, though I'm not sure that any living human has truly confused the two. If one has, I'm not sure I want to watch a show about him or her. John Cho is Henry Higgs, her slightly uptight colleague who prioritizes polite conversation over texting or whatever dumb crap »

Mojang recently confirmed that Microsoft is buying the studio in a deal worth $2.5 billion (£1.54 billion).
In a press release, Microsoft confirmed that it would continue to make the game available on existing PC, iOS, Android, Xbox and PlayStation platforms, adding that »
"I started off in comedy actually, so it's kind of like a return to that for me," Gillan tells TVGuide.com in the video below. "I like doing an American accent."
On the new series, premiering Tuesday at 8/7c on ABC, the actress gets to flex those comedy muscles as Eliza Dooley, a young Los Angeles-area woman who has tons of social media followers but "doesn't really know how to connect with people in real life," she says.

Eliza soon asks her coworker Henry (John Cho), a marketing guru, to "make Eliza a more acceptable human being," Cho says.

The reason Doctor Who has lasted so long is not only due to the ability to recast its leading actor without breaking the story, it is also because that when the Doctor regenerates the show does too. Under a new face it can completely change its tone and style. And under the bottle-top-breaking eyebrows of Peter Capaldi the show has had one whopper of a regeneration.
With Doctor Who coming up to ten years since it was brought back, there has been a conscious effort to do something different. Namely, to give the show a moodier, broodier outlook. However, too much seriousness does not a good Doctor Who make and, thankfully, this series is also aware that there needs to be light (Robot of Sherwood) alongside the shade (Into the Dalek) and heart (The Caretaker) as well as scares (Listen).
With this in mind, it could be said that »

Victoria, British Columbia. This past spring, my tour of Fake American Police Precincts took me from Bemidji, Minnesota in Calgary for FX's "Fargo" to Gracepoint, California in Victoria, BC for Fox's "Gracepoint." After avoiding incarceration in Bemidji, I find myself with two other reporters, a publicist and at least three or four hair-and-makeup professionals in Gracepoint's not-uncomfortable lock-up. Once they have us behind bars, there's a very real chance that one of us will turn out to be the murderer in "Gracepoint," since a consistent refrain from the entire cast is that none of them know know whodunnit and the person behind the death of young Danny Solano won't be the same character who killed Danny Latimer in the original "Broadchurch." It's early May on the "Gracepoint" set and they're finishing up paired production on episodes seven and eight and moving on to the climactic ninth and 10th episodes, »
